2 I. Introduction and Basic Concepts The elasticity approach: one of the most commonly used conditional forecasting methods Like the effective tax rate approach, changes in tax revenue reflect mainly changes in the tax base if policy is unchanged What is different about the elasticity approach: Revenues can rise faster or more slowly than changes in tax base ( nonlinear response ) Forecast: combines mechanical projection with estimated impact of any tax change and judgment (to reflect possible variations in compliance or other information on specific shocks to tax collection). 3 Buoyancy Buoyancy of a tax is the realized/observed relative variation in revenue collection or a specific revenue item compared to the relative change in the proxy tax base: Buoyancy = ( T/ T) / ( Base/Base) Thus, buoyancy is based on actual revenues and reflects all changes in the tax system, including the tax rates and brackets, the definition of the base, variations in enforcement/compliance, or other specific shocks. A tax is said to be buoyant if the tax revenues increase more than proportionately to a rise in output. 4 2
3 Elasticity The elasticity of a tax measures the automatic response of tax revenue to changes in the tax base. Elasticity = ( AT/ AT) / ( TB/TB) The elasticity excludes the effects of discretionary changes in the tax structure (tax rates, coverage, exemptions, and deductions) or administration, as well as the introduction of new taxes. Thus, the elasticity can differ from the buoyancy (next slide) is based on adjusted, rather than actual, revenues The elasticity must be estimated by removing the effects of discretionary changes from revenue data. This can be hard to do (need estimates of effects of these changes). 5 Forecasts with Buoyancies and Elasticities lnr Ln(Actual Rev.) = a + b lnb  using estimated buoyancy Ln(Adjusted Rev.) = + lnb  using estimated elasticity lnb 6 3
4 Proportional Adjustment Method: An Example for Adjusting Revenue Year Actual Tax Discretionary Tax Collection Share of Adjusted d Collections Measure Excluding New Measure Tax Measure in Revenue Receipts T DS T  DS T/(TDS) T* Col Elasticity Golden rule: the tax system is such that elasticity of tax revenues to the tax base should ideally be close to 1. In practice, estimated elasticity can differ from 1. Progressive income taxes can have an elasticity > 1 Lagged indexation of tax brackets to inflation or wages raises elasticity. Proportional (advalorem) taxes (VAT, payroll tax) more likely to exhibit estimated elasticity of 1. Elasticity below 1 is possible for specific taxes (e.g., excise or stamp duties) if they are not indexed and/or collected promptly, or if consumers devote smaller shares of income to these items over time (e.g., tobacco products). 8 4
5 Elasticity Inflation can raise or lower the elasticity. Inflation can boost income tax elasticity if collection occurs shortly after assessment (progressivity and delayed indexation of brackets). Inflation will depress elasticity of all taxes if significant collections lags the real value of the tax dues is eroded (OliveiraTanzi effect), i.e., tax base is growing faster than revenues. For practical purposes: Any estimated elasticity very different from 1 (e.g., 0.5 or 2) should raise questions: can you explain it? More importantly: if you cannot estimate the elasticity (because data adjustment is hard), beware of highly unstable buoyancies from year to year 9 Elasticity The arithmetic of nonunitary elasticity. 0.3 Reven nue to tax base ratio unitelasticity 1.5 elasticity 2 elasticity 0.5 elasticity 10 5
6 Elasticity For mediumterm forecast: safe to assume that outeryear elasticities are unlikely to stay very high or very low. Tax brackets are ultimately indexed; Limits to gains from better tax administration (compliance and enforcement, ). Translating other basic forecasting techniques in terms of elasticity: Effective tax rate approach: Keeping ETR constant = unit elasticity Raising ETR: above 1 elasticity Simple extrapolations of tax revenue: Equivalent to unit elasticity if projected revenue growth is the same as the projected growth in the tax base 11 II. Estimating Tax Elasticity 12 6
7 Elasticity and regression analysis Even with few data points, an elasticity can in principle be estimated using a simple linear ( OLS ) regression model of the form: 1 2 where Y is the dependent variable (log of revenues), X is the explanatory variable (log of proxy tax base), and ε is an error term. We use logarithms because the estimate of a 2 is the estimated elasticity. We will have n values for Y and X, one for each observation in our estimation period. 13 Illustration: tax revenues vs. base (in logarithms) (MonteCarlo simulation) ln of revenue y = x R² = ln of base Using logs, the estimated elasticity is the slope of the regression model. Even though data were generated with a model exhibiting unit elasticity as the truth, the estimated elasticity is
8 Regression analysis The pattern of deviations (residuals) around this fitted line indicates how good a fit we have. The larger they are, the less our model is able to explain the evolution of Y by variations in X. If we have the forecast values for X, we can use the model to forecast values for Y. Because the model is imperfect, there will be errors around the forecast, which will depend on the distribution of the residuals. 15 Illustration: tax revenues vs. base (in log) (MonteCarlo simulation) 0.1 OLS residuals (of loglog model) These OLS residuals are very well behaved: the estimator of the elasticity is unbiased and efficient, even though it is WRONG. That was expected: underlying errors were generated randomly, assuming a normal distribution. But why is OLS estimator different from the truth? 16 8
9 Illustration: tax revenues vs. base (in log) (MonteCarlo simulation) 3 True errors (in $bn) Even though they were randomly generated (true!), this particular draw of error terms is such that there seems to be an (unintended) trend. This trend will be captured by the OLS estimation and explains why the estimated coefficient higher than the true model (1.2 > 1) there is always a confidence interval around the estimated elasticity. 17 Risks with Simple Estimation Our simple regression may yield good results because tax revenues and the tax base are both increasing. In technical language, we are dealing with nonstationary series. To be sure of our relationship, we need to use stationary series, meaning that there is no systematic tendency for the data to rise or fall over time. 9
10 Developing Stationary Series One way to solve the problem is to estimate an equation using the change in the log of revenues (rather than the log of revenues) and the change in the log of the tax base (rather than the log of the tax base). This usually provides stationary series. Another approach is to use cointegration analysis. Econometric software offers ways to do this. IMF course on Macroeconomic Forecasting teaches how to test for stationarity and do cointegration. What If You Can t Do Cointegration? Cointegration approach: combines longterm relationship with shortterm and estimates adjustment dynamics from ST to LT. Hard to do in data constrained environments. Second best: Focus the econometrics on shortterm relationship: we deliberately ignore the longterm and the implied dynamics. But at least, the trends will not pollute the simple regression estimation. For outer years of projections: assume convergence of coefficient towards an intuitive longterm value. Beware of results if using actual rather than adjusted data: will estimate buoyancy rather than elasticity if tax law or administration have changed noticeably during the period 20 10
11 Conclusion on estimation Simple model linking revenues to the tax base can be useful. Elasticity (buoyancy) can be estimated simply. But: Keep in mind presumed longterm value for elasticity (ideally around 1). The estimated elasticity will not necessarily be the true one! If data are actuals, estimate may be a buoyancy 21 III. From Projection to Forecast Use estimated elasticity cautiously. Does the overall value make sense? Large deviations from 1 must be substantiated. Compare with past realizations (point elasticities); Look for evidence of an emerging break in the estimated model (e.g. systematically positive or negative forecast errors over the last few years). Always plot data on charts, check residuals. Revenue Forecast: projection + adjustments f Rt 1 Rt 1 g elasticity Adjustments base 22 11
12 Adjustment factors Adjustments factors form the art dimension of forecasting. As it involves judgment, transparency is essential for the credibility of the forecast. The most common reasons for adjusting mechanical projections are: Temporary shocks have occurred in the past: base effect must be corrected (otherwise implicit assumption that the shock is permanent). Role of nonquantifiable/qualitative lit information about impending shocks. Assumption about compliance/enforcement/tax administration reforms must be clearly spelled out. Systematic revenue increases (decreases) during the period will bias estimated elasticity up (down) 23 Shortterm term and longer term Shortterm nature of the econometric relationship during a time of economic transition: ii Likelihood of unstable relationship (the past may not be a good predictor of the future) Be explicit about how you see longterm trends for outeryear (t+3 and beyond): Historical averages? Other assumptions? 24 12
13 When to Use Elasticity Approach Elasticity approach can be valuable when data suggest a nonlinear response of revenue to the proxy tax base: elasticity different from 1 If estimated elasticity equals 1, result is same as effective tax rate approach Risk arises if buoyancies or elasticities vary a lot from year to year. If so, using estimated elasticity may give poor forecast to revenue. Example: if tax base rises but revenue falls, buoyancy is negative. Is decline due to policy change? Can impact be estimated and data adjusted to show elasticity? Summary and Conclusion Elasticity approach allows revenues to grow faster or more slowly than the tax base Compare buoyancy and elasticity: Buoyancy is relationship between changes in actual revenues and changes in proxy tax base Elasticity reflects automatic change in revenues from change in tax base; represents an average response Buoyancies and elasticities can be estimated using regression approaches; note risks Beware of frequent yeartoyear changes in buoyancies or elasticities 13
